the daily beast that the drone program will move from the cia to the defense department. that could increase accountability and transparency. the president also responded by saying this at the state of the union. >> i will continue to engage congress to ensure not only that our targeting, detention and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of checks and balances. but that our efforts are even more transparent to the american people and to the world. >> but it looks like that effort is not getting very far. the administration refused to even send a witness to testify and answer questions at today's hearings. the chair of the hearing told us the legal and policy questions surrounded targeted killings require a public debate. once again, it looks like a debate the white house would rather skip. joining us now to discuss the government's obligation to defend the nation and the constitution is dan clydeman who has been all over the story and wrote a definitive account of the evolving detention policies. kill or capture, the war on terr terror. and chief foreign cor
on the house subcommittee for national security, homeland defense and foreign operations. congressman, thanks for joining us by phone on this saturday. >> thanks for having me, craig. >> we saw those massive celebrations in the streets of boston, around boston last night. but as the dust settles today, what's the mood like there? how long is it going to take for folks to get back to normal? >> it will take a while longer. i think there's a great deal of relief being vented right now. people are just glad that these two individuals have been cap sbhaurd little bit of a caution out there as well, people wondering, as the president said, what else is involved, if anything here and who else might be involved? i think that mostly, a lot of concern for the families. i was in wilmington earlier today where sean collier's family had lived. he was the m.i.t. officer who passed away. people there are incredibly supportive of that family, the law enforcement people there trying to make sure the family was able to get to the hospital when the incident happened. so, there's just a mixture of feelings and
